Paint Party Friday #27

Art Galore! Yes, all at your fingertips. Visit Paint Party Friday today to see it all. :)

My week´s work:
More faces on backgrounds:
This new face started as a white oval, and not copying faces from magazines like last week.
Want a closer look of the texture? White base, solferino (brownish/burgundy red), paper napkin and a bit of white gesso that was left on my brush after painting the white ovel. That is a characteristic of my work, I use e-ve-ry-thing. No drop of paint is left behind. :D
A failed experiment.
Ink brayered on foam figure. The figure was too thick for the brayer to be able to ink closer to the border. I was using them as masks.
Good unexpected thing: the foam figures worked as stamps when I closed the book.
Today: working on geometric shapes. I´ve already painted two blocks and moved the tapes for the next. The plan is to stamp circles or ... who knows. :D
I´ll be visiting you this weekend, start the kettle, I´ll bring the biccies. ;)

Great experiments; you might try using a stiff stencil brush to get right around the edge of the cutouts. Happy PPF!

Hi Paula. Love the way you always experiment. It's one good way of learning. You always turn out wonderful projects this way. Have a great week.

Your a true explorer of art. Adore it when an experiment gives you a truly beautiful gift in return....unexpected from your initial idea.
lOVE the dove print.
